GP F1 Monte Carlo: Parade Time

Post by eso on Fri May 27 2011, 04:22

P2 and Freddy is quick... Does the Ferrari have good mechanical grip or good high downforce aero?

Well, it will be all about the order after qualies as always here.

I'm ready to watch, a good excuse to drink coffee. Looks like Nico crashed, was that earlier this morning?

Shame, Qualy was just getting good. Why the hell did Ferrari send Massa out in front of Lew's flyer?

Well, I called it. Vettel is well on his way to a WDC repeat.

Lots of carnage this year. What's up with that?

BTW, Jill switched our cable service to a fiber optic system bundle at a big saving, but the channel line-up doesn't include SPEED... tiot...

Did Alguswervi crash on purpose to allow Vettel to get fresh tires?

German RTL feed with no sound. Sucked.

Interesting race, Hamilton as ice hockey player checking others into the boards. It does show control to be able to punt others off and maintain a driveable though damaged car.

Wondered about his Massa hit, did he damage flippy or did he just crash in the tunnel?

gueuze, I'm going to need some tips for the live web feeds until we upgrade our channel selection.

There might be a better place. I wish I could pay a subscription to Speed, and watch hi-def online. Not going to give the cable vultures $60 a month, and then have to pay another upgrade for a premuim sports package. At least when we had the DirectTV dish, Speed was in the basic package.

Also- note that they are just an embedding broker- they do not host the race, and what is available is inconsistant at best. There is a lot of copyright violation going on, but it is taking place in other countries. The place I used to watch (ADTHE) was closed by the department of homeland security, because terrorists were using it to......hmmmmm

it's all about the money.

Since we now have home phone, internet and TV through the same fiber optic system it is only $15 more per month for the channel upgrade and we're still paying less than we used to for the same services.

An added bonus is the HDTV and multi-room DVR. If I get the channel upgrade we would also get an HD-Theatre channel that has hours of HD WRC coverage too (Oh-Boy!)

I think I'm going to do that soon.

Am I the only one that thinks that they shouldn't be able to repair, and change the car tyres during a red flag? That completely ruined a good finish.

Totally agree. And it allowed drivers who had damaged their cars back into the race. I hope they change the regulation.

I wasn't even aware the race would be re-started until I saw all the engineers and mechanics rolling equipment onto the grid. Greater than 75% race distance completed, the race used to be called a result with full points awarded. They must have changed it recently.

A brilliant race weekend I thought, it had everything you'd expect from Monaco. Shame about the red flags at the end of quali and race though, but otherwise, a great few days of racing in a place you'd last expect to have a race in!
